Characteristics of Eguren Ugarte Crianza
Ugarte Crianza is a red wine from D.O. Rioja produced by Bodegas Ugarte, one of the wineries owned by the Eguren family.
This classic wine is a coupage of, mainly, Tempranillo and a small percentage of Grenache. The grapes are grown in vineyards located in Labastida, Páganos and Elciego, the heart of Rioja Alavesa.
The climate in this area is Mediterranean but with a great Atlantic influence. Sierra de Cantabria acts as a natural protection barrier for cold winds from the north.
The vines are planted in clay-lime soils located at an altitude between 400 and 700 metres above sea level. The soils demonstrate the marvellous characteristics of the vine cultivation.
The harvest is done mechanically in order to ensure the grapes are collected at the optimum moment. After the selection of the grapes in the winery, there is a destemming and squeezing. Afterwards, the must undergoes a fermentation with selected yeast for 15 days at a controlled temperature of 25-28ªC. There is a daily pumping during this process. Once the fermentation finishes, there is a maceration for 7 days.
Finally, Ugarte Crianza rests in American and French oak barrels for 15 months undergoing a racking every 4-6 months. The aging process finishes with 6 months in the bottle before being released onto the market.
